Tinos

Tinos is an island in the heart of the Aegean Sea, close to the islands Andros, Mykonos and Delos. It is known as the Holy Island where pilgrims crawl on their hands and knees from the port up the street and up the steps of the Sacred Church of the Virgin Mary to kiss the miracle-working icon.

Apart from being one of the holiest shrines in Greece, the island is full of interesting places waiting to be discovered. More than 600 intricate dovecotes, 62 authentic villages, 750 churches and chapels and numerous alluring beaches, all make up the character of this Aegean Island. With a long tradition in marble sculpture, Tinian craftsmen have transformed every lintel, doorway, and fountain into a work of art, all typical examples of local architecture.

The fascination of Tinos lies in the hinterland and in the nature, the ancient rural streets that lead to whitewashed chapels, unique pigeon houses and medieval villages with elegant arches, cobbled paths, chapels and white houses. Explore the lunar landscape around Volax, hike in the countryside, take a break at a traditional cafe under the shade of the sycamore trees and have a Greek coffee or taste the local cuisine. Feel the lifestyle of Tinos and the unique hospitality the island offers.
